There are many travel books on the shelves of bookshops, but few travel writers describe the day-to-day grind of travelling through a continent such as South America with a partner in the way that Tony Gant does. His outlook on life, combined with a degree of cynical humour that is unique to Londoners, and totally misunderstood by the rest of the world, banded together to create, not only a brilliant situation comedy about the rigors of back-packing, but also to produce a book that is a mine of practical information to anyone who intends to visit this mysterious continent. This is especially so if the aim is to travel as much as possible by rail.

You may not agree with all of his thoughts and actions, notably if you a 5-star tourist, or a reader of the Guardian newspaper (or indeed his one-time travel partner, a German lady by the name of Marita), but it is guaranteed that you will find this book hard to put down once you have embarked on his journey.

This book is the result of 18 months of work after the discovery of a pile of jottings (Tony called them 'diaries') in a drawer at his one time home in the Midlands. I have tried to retain the 'diary' feel to this incredible story and Tony's way of expressing himself. Therefore, grammar and sentence construction have, in place, not been strictly adhered to.

Dean Murphy ­ editor of the original script

Most of the names in this book have been altered to protect the innocent... and the guilty! One or two of the place names have been similarly treated.
